John Kennedy reports to silicon republic that ".. BT will be the first telecoms firm to test the Exemplar Dynamic Desktop, a cloud solution to enable firms to deliver bandwidth on demand, developed by Intune Networks, Openet and Amartus .. The Liquid Bandwidth solution .. allows operators to increase a customer’s bandwidth remotely from a desktop. The Catalyst project is based on Intune Networks' Optical Packet Switch and Transport (OPST) technology, Amartus Service Commander and Openet’s Policy Charging and Control (PCC). The project is a pre-cursor to developing the toolset needed to create a distributed data centre based upon cloud services".

Peter Willis (pictured), chief data network strategist, BT Innovate & Design said: “Liquid bandwidth services will empower customers to purchase bandwidth when needed in a cost-effective and timely manner that closely tracks their real hour-by-hour and day-by-day bandwidth requirements with the comfort that the network can 'flex' to meet any unanticipated demands”
